The style essentials FLARE’s Fashion Director Elizabeth Cabral will be packing.

What have you done to prepare for fashion week? “I’ve been doing a lot of last minute shopping, resoling my favourite shoes, trying to catch up on sleep and healthy eating.”?

What show are you most excited for? “In Paris every show is a great show!I’m excited about the entire week.”?

How do you plan to combat tricky weather? “Lots of layers, statement hats and scarves and heels with rubber grip soles.”?

What items in your wardrobe work overtime when covering the shows? “My designer coats. It’s tempting to wear the same outfit underneath since no one sees it in the winter.”?

What is your top fashion week style tip? “Invest in great coats – they’re the first thing everyone sees, and pack a pair of flats in your purse. I NEVER show up at the show circuit sans heels. Sounds victimized, but shoes make an outfit and in heels you feel more confident. Let’s face it, this is fashion week, everyone’s looking at what you’re wearing.”
